Ryan Gosling: An Ab Appreciation Of The 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Star

If the marketing campaign for this weekend's "Crazy, Stupid, Love" has taught us anything, it's that Ryan Gosling possesses the kind of rippling abdominal region that seems possible only through extensive digital manipulation. But if you're any sort of Gosling buff, you knew that already. From "The Notebook" to "Fracture," there's plenty of celluloid evidence attesting to the glories of Ryan's taut torso. Though, we'll admit after hours of meticulous video research, that he's never been in finer form than he is now.

But you didn't come here for a bunch of blather from me. Click on the video above for our brief retrospective/appreciation of Ryan's abs on film (fainting couch and cold compress sold separately).
